Hello all,
I thought it was about time we made some contribution to the site so here goes with some of our favourite tea stops.
At the Lincoln end of the Water Railway there's a good little cafe that's very welcoming to cyclists - not sure what it's called. It's on the sort of industrial estate thingy that you come to as you hit Lincoln (where the radio station is and opposite the humpty iron bridge over the river).
'Maps To Treasure' Tearoom at Walesby (N.E. of Market Rasen) - it's a bit hidden away at the back of a stone barn type building - it's on Rasen Road and postcode is LN8 3UW. Some really lush cake (and I expect there's healthy food as well).
Tearoom at Tetford which is just NE of Horncastle. We found it was already open at 8.45am this morning. You can sit outside overlooking their fishing lake. Really nice coffee and the breakfast smelled fab (but we had to cycle up Tetford Hill afterwards).
'Just Desserts' on the Broadway in Woodhall Spa - home made ice cream, lush cake etc etc open all year - a nice patio that catches the sun. We've had our Boxing Day breakfast there, sat in the sun.
We do actually do some cycling but must admit to a tendency to planning rides around tea stops!

initially I thought that was a typo :lol:

the cafe at Thetford, or rather Brandon, isn't bad either.

Nine of us had a great ride on Sunday, stopped at tearooms in Tealby and Walesby.

Walesby was very welcoming, grumpy woman in Tealby though...nothing to do with us being cyclists, she was just grumpy despite a cup of tea being £1.60 and a coffee £1.90.

Road past Bernie Taupin's house, Elton wasn't there!

Roadking.
